One Skillet Spicy Sausage Pasta

My family LOVED this dish!!  I found this recipe here at Kevin and Amanda's blog.  It is SO simple and I love that you only dirty one pan :)  The recipe calls for a can of Rotel tomatoes, but I just used a can of store brand petite diced tomatoes with green chili.  Because we LOVE green chili around here...I also added extra.


One Skillet Spicy Sausage Pasta

1 tbsp oil
1 lb smoked sausage, chopped
1 diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 (10 oz) can Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chili, Mild (I used store brand diced tomatoes w/green chili)
1/4 cup chopped green chili, optional
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 oz Gemini pasta
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, each
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Directions:   Heat oil in an oven-safe skillet(I LOVE a good cast iron skillet) over medium high heat until HOT.  Add sausage and onions, cook until light brown, approx 4-5 minutes.  Add garlic and cook an additional 30ish seconds.  Add broth, tomatoes, green chili, cream, pasta, salt and pepper.  Stir together.  Bring to boil, cover skillet and reduce heat to medium-low.  Simmer until pasta is tender, approx. 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup cheese.  Top with remaining cheese and broil until cheese is melted, bubbly and beginning to brown.
Pin It!
